Get Involved: Feedback Wanted for HHSRS Operating Guidance Review

22nd January 2019 RIAMS

In the latest blog post from Steve Battersby, he focuses on the upcoming review of the HHSRS Operating Guidance by the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG).

RHE have been commissioned to carry out this review and we are asking for your feedback on 6 key areas:

  1. identify which parts of the HHSRS are out of date and need to be revised
  2. demonstrate whether there would be scope for introducing a sampling and cloning approach
  3. indicate whether the current penalties for non-compliance are appropriate and proportionate
  4. show whether there is a need for additional worked examples in the guidance
  5. help establish the feasibility of using digital technology to develop an app for the HHSRS 
  6. consider whether minimum standards should be included in the framework.

The work in this scoping study will include a number of workshops for practitioners and there will also be an online questionnaire using Survey Monkey. In advance of this, we would welcome thoughts from our community members.
